June 2016 WhepMom Workshop

Young moms and their family members (partner, parents, grandparents, siblings) attended a Safe Sleep Education Workshop to learn about infant safe sleep, SIDS and ways to reduce the risk of SIDS. Our guest speakers, Katie Higgins and Sara Frantz, from Community Wellness of Nationwide’s Children’s Hospital discussed with our attendees the importance of prenatal care and information about StepOne and how to access care if needed. The Care Mobile Unit of Nationwide’s Children’s Hospital was on-site for moms and their family members who needed health check-ups.

This event was made possible by the CJ foundation of SIDS and hosted by FOCUS Learning Academy in partnership with Columbus Diaper Coalition, Mid-Ohio Food Bank and Columbus Public Health.
